Police Are Still Investigating Rape Case Against Nelly

As we reported on Friday, the woman accusing Nelly of rape is now refusing to testify and wants the case dropped. Her lawyer claims that “she believes the system is going to fail her.” TMZ reports that police are still investigating the charges and don’t plan to stop just because the accuser is no longer cooperating. Police in Auburn are still getting evidence together and plan to present the case at the prosecutor’s office.

The accuser couldn’t handle the scrutiny of accusing a celebrity of a crime and felt as though the police had betrayed her. Even though the fact she won’t testify makes the case harder, it won’t be impossible to prosecute the rapper if enough evidence is found. Police are hoping to present the case to prosecutors within a week.

Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum thinks the case is going to be closed. He added: “I would expect the police to do their due diligence.

Nelly acted like he was relieved over the weekend but is not out of the woods yet.
